Acolysis System

Acolysis™ System

An ultrasonic catheter-deployed device, which uses high-frequency ultrasound waves to dissolve clots in occluded blood vessels.
Other potential applications Dissolving clots in access and vascular grafts, DVT, PE and strokes
Note: In a comparison of thrombectomy devices (Hydrolyser, Clot Buster, Acolysis System, AngioJet and Fogarty embolectomy catheter) for acture internal carotid thrombosis, comparing (i) efficiency at removing thrombus, (ii) pressure changes at the tip of each device, and (iii) distal embolisation by flow cytometry, thrombus clearance was least with the Acolysis System (median 34%,) and greatest with the AngioJet (median 95%).
